    Run DEFENSE, anyone? Stats from last 6!

    Before the season started, i was touting our defense as being in the top 10 for rundefense...i think the last 6 games have shown that that could be true by the end of the season if we did not build a big enough hole for ourselves. you got to hand it to PAT and crew.

    listing from neeset matches to oldest:

    Att Yrds. Yrds/Carry
    Green Bay 14 21 1.5
    NY 29 124 4.27
    (remind you, we were concentrating on stopping thier 2 top receivers and they are a top 5 offense)
    Detriot 20 58 2.9
    Carolina 39 111 2.84
    (note: the panthers are considered one of the best NFC teams on their way to the SB)
    Green Bay 25 45 1.8
    Chicago 30 95 3.16

    It no wonder that we won 4 out these 6. You can't run, you have to throw and our secondary is picking up the slack with INT's.

    Totals the last 6 games:
    157 454 2.89 Yrds/Carry! 75.6 Yards/Game Allowed!

    Keep it up Pat and crew! SKOL VIKES!

    I do not see any reason why our Defense cannot hold Droughns to less than 60 yards and forcing whoever they have QBing to throw to sharper and crew.

    PAvikesfan thanks a lot for posting that!

    I knew our D has been stepping it up against the run lately and was wondering exactly how good we have been doing. But I was too lazy to go back and do the math on all of it so thanks! and just like I thought we are definately positioning ourselves to have a top 10 D by the end of the year!

    I can't wait for the real test of our defense, Pitt. If we can slow that run attack then we'll know it's for real.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    You're right! Pitt will be a true test...but first we have Cleveland and St. Louis..who also run the ball half decent. we do well consistently against them, then we'll do well against Pitt. I'd love to win the run battle against Pitt! that would be awesome!

    hahahaha Pittsburgh is going to DESTROY your defense. The only test will be keeping the rushing yards under 200 for the game.

    Vikes should go 5 of the last 6, with Pittsburgh being the loss...realistically!
